Nice to see some one else riding the line I built in 2016!

Men's Category of Slopestyle Will Not Proceed - Crankworx Rotorua 2024 [Updated with FMBA Statement]
@dubbin1991: nah, I say scrap the ladies class and the men's class, and just have one Open class. take the double equal payments to make it pay to last place, that way if you ride the show you get paid. Increase the rider count to 24 like the old day and have the 24 best athletes in the world are invited. everything is equal then! Did i just solve all the issues?

You think its fair that every girl competing gets paid for competing? Last place in the girls gets paid. The boys dont get that....

its more than that. If you look at it, every woman that showed up to ride will get paid. The boys are asking for the same. Theres also more about it thats been discussed multiple times with the FMBA and Crankworx that hasnt been addressed. Sponsors wont care in the long term. I say this from experience.

I think its a great idea. Rampage now pays 7500 USD to appear. There are costs involved to get to the event which at least half the diamond field has to cover on its own. Most the guys have second jobs. I did for multiple years to make it all work and I was one of the lucky ones...

it always has, you cant remove it. Even the judges know it. biasism always will happen. its an emotional thing FISE Montpellier 2012, It was a super wind fest event, they RE-ran qualifying at half course for. which I was PISSED about after they nearly finished first runs, and I was sitting on the top spot.... (one complete set of runs and it would have been finished and officially classified.) One lipped step down into two trick jumps. Judges award Yannick top spot with a flip bar down the step down to double truck the first into a huge flip whip on the last. I was judged 21st with what looked like the same run, but my truck and flip whip where Opposite. Told me it was three things why, He was French, its Yannick with a red bull lid and i did it TOO well for them to know..... Happened again that year at Hylands slopestyle. I was classified 5th, 2 points from the win off semenuk. Judges didnt know some of my stuff was oppo to regular, docking me points for repeating tricks...

more too it than just the prize money. This conversation with Crankworx/FMBA has happened multiple times in the past. Its only the second time where the riders actually said enough is enough and stood together. There is more to this story than what they are putting out there. The last time this happened was 2014 at Red bull Rampage. The event almost didnt happen. Us riders basicly told RB no, this isnt right.

@outhouse: Every woman competing will get paid. its not the same for the boys. While the pay out is the equal, the percentage of the riders getting paid isnt....
